    I know deck threads typically talk about improving rough matches, but I'd like to take a moment to ask about a deck I've been doing incredibly well against.

    I've been running Whir Prison over every time I see it with Echoing Truth in junction with Unmoored Ego. It completely rips out their lock pieces with no recourse. Since they don't really do much to put a clock on us in the early game I've been able to set this up pretty easily and remove the one or two things that are stopping me from winning.

    Has anyone else been using this to fight anything else? Is this something other people are doing? Is anyone else looking for a new angle to try?
    Following that, is there a play pattern that's aided you against any deck in particular that you don't see often?

    This is what I've been running, I know it's a bit different.

    Being unbeatable in the late game feels like a weird statement to a control player, it's literally the goal of the deck to create an insurmountable advantage.

    Multiple ebay accounts with multiple shipping addresses. But as a long time seller myself, if I see something fishy, I can cancel the order outright for anyone I feel I don't want to ship to for any reason.

    In the words of Matt Mercer: you can certainly try.
    So if I get my brother to let me use my card on his eBay account, does the seller see the name on the card?

    I am also very excited for Kefnet, but I think I'll keep the Red. Being able to get back a countered Kefnet or "Miracle" a Kommand off him is going to be some really good value.

    I love the way the x4 Hieroglyphic Illumination likely plays with Kefnet as well. I assume the copy of Murderous Cut can abuse Delve, right? These are just really good looking includes.

    Supreme Will seems like an odd choice, but I suppose you're abusing the modal to get deck sift? Dimir Charm seems odd as well. No Damnation? I think I enjoy the silly interaction of getting to Damnation for BB just to replay the god a few turns later like nothing happened... And still keep your Damnation.

    If you're going to put in 2 Jace and 3 Kefnet, why not a single Nexus of Fate or Time Warp? Get infinite turns for 3UU or 1UU respectively. Seems like a fair finisher for establishing such a board state.

    How does the miracle discount interact with Thalia? If I flip a Kommand with a Thalia in play, does it cost 1RB or RB? EDIT: I found the answer. It would cost RB; Thalia's rulings says it all.

    I'm banking pretty hard on Counterspell being printed. Honestly, if that's all they print that's worth playing then I'll be incredibly happy. I strongly think the card has more game than some people give it credit for.

    I think Hymn is way strong. Brainstorm and Ponder would almost 100% require another cantrip to be banned; I just think we're already at a critical mass of them (if not too many) and adding the more powerful ones is not something WotC should want to be doing unless it cuts out a bunch of the others. It just plays too much into Xerox decks.

    With some of the cards in WAR, I think they're going to be fairly bold with Horizons. Veto is blatantly in white, so is new Teferi. I think their printing will position white as the anti-control control to keep non-white control in check so they can print something like Baleful Strix in Horizons. Just a theory and a hope.

    They did say in the article that they will be using the Hasbro eBay.

    I'm only curious how you get past the "2 per person" limit.

    A seller on eBay can very easily cancel any order from any buyer for any reason.
    I meant more "how do I get 4?"

    They literally say "Masterpiece" on them, but the article for their announcement does call it a "Mythic Edition".

    Frustrating, to say the least.

    What land are you dropping for it? Or rather what does your mana base look like?

    I certainly like the symmetry it can break if you find yourself in that situation.

    How's the card stock in these? Do people generally find that they curl quickly or are they generally pretty flat?

    I know some supplemental products have ranged from very good to very bad in the past.

    I think Tyrant's Scorn is an option. I see could see it used plenty in the GDS match because it covers everything. It's obviously not an overwhelming inclusion but options are good until we get something more universal (here's to hoping).

    Interesting that you play a Dreadship Reef. You don't have any issues keeping it with things like Field of Ruin being fairly common in decks?

    I think a bunch of those are cool and flashy, but I'm looking more towards Liliana's Triumph, Ob Nixilis's Cruelty as a one of, Angrath's Rampage, Tyrant's Scorn, and Ashiok, Dream Render as small boosts to the deck. I think a few are clear sideboard cards, others I think can make a run at the main.

    Kefnet, I don't think goes in Cruel Control. I think Kefnet is a win condition of his own and should operate apart from Cruel Ultimatum. I could be wrong though, no big deal; I just think he's more of a win condition than a stabilizer. One interaction I fully intend to abuse is getting a "miracle" Damnation and just drawing him again in a few turns to keep abusing him. I am fairly high on Kefnet as a good card though.

    How on earth does Gideon's Sacrifice work if you make the creature not a creature but it's still on the board? I'm thinking Theros Gods or Imprisoned in the Moon shenanigans. The thing is still on the field... It just doesn't have a toughness anymore.

    Arboreal Grazer seems like a pretty solid card, in my opinion. Playing an extra land on T1 is going to see play. I'd bet at a minimum TitanShift picks it up to try it out.

    Has anyone been brewing with Ral, Storm Conduit? There was a fair amount of hype around him for a few days after his spoiling and now I haven't heard a mention anywhere. I'm curious if anyone has come up with any rough deck lists involving the copy combo as a plan A or B.

    This is just begging to follow Liliana's -9.
